ParkerVision Announces Markman Hearing In Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Qualcomm

Both of these developments stem from a lawsuit that ParkerVision filed against Qualcomm on July 20, 2011, in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.  ParkerVision brought this action because Qualcomm's past and current chipset products infringe several ParkerVision patents related to radio-frequency receivers and the down-conversion of electromagnetic signals, which represent a body of intellectual property that ParkerVision pioneered for creating direct conversion receivers.

ParkerVision's lawsuit seeks monetary damages from Qualcomm as well as a permanent injunction barring the manufacture and sale of Qualcomm's infringing devices.  Additionally, the complaint accuses Qualcomm of willfully infringing and seeks an award of exemplary damages, attorneys' fees and related court costs.

More information on the case can be found on the ParkerVision website at http://www.parkervision.com/public_relations/patent_litigation.php.
